Donna Galbreath assumed that her beloved town of Cedar Harbor would return to its peaceful existence after she and her neighbor, Cyrus Bates, solved the murder of a victim she had found on the beach. Then the town's inept police chief, William Donniker, dies suddenly at a function honoring him. Monkshood, the same poison used in the beach murder case, is the cause of death -- and the monkshood held in the police evidence room is missing.

It has been over four years since the first enjoyable Donna Rose mystery was published (Donna Rose and the Slug War, 2004). This second one is equally entertaining; let’s hope Johnson steps up her pace. Widow Donna Rose Galbreath is an avid gardener and a forthright retired schoolteacher in Cedar Harbor, Washington. Her neighbor is crusty, retired navy lawyer Cyrus Bates. So far they alternate between feuding and fostering an uneasy friendship. This time the murder victim is the inept and universally disliked police chief, Billy Donniker. After their friend, policeman Jake Santorini, is falsely arrested for the crime, Donna and Cyrus feel compelled to investigate. Donna is good at talking to people around town, while Cyrus excels in computer skills; between them, they patch together a list of suspects—including the new owner of the local newspaper and a forlorn Iraq War veteran—and solve the puzzle. Pleasant reading for gardeners and for those who enjoy small-town mysteries. --Judy Coon
